Omega Squadron, (also known as the Death's Head Legion) was one of the squadrons of the Terran Confederacy, originally stationed at Dylar IV.[1] Consisting of multiple divisions,[2] it was renowned throughout Confederate space for its unrelenting savagery in battle, and as such only called upon to avert extremely severe crisis situations. Most of the Squadron was composed of criminals who had undergone neural resocialization. Its color is black,[1] but it appears brown in StarCraft.[3]

HistoryEdit

Early ActionsEdit

Omega Squadron's early actions remain mostly unrevealed, although it is known that it achieved an "epic" victory over the planet of Tal Qirat.[1]

Fall of the ConfederacyEdit

An Omega Squadron force was stationed on the central space platform of Tarsonis alongside Delta Squadron. It defended the platform against the Sons of Korhal forces but were eventually defeated.[3] Elements of Omega Squadron also fought against the rebels in the streets of Tarsonis City and were also defeated.[4]

At least one Omega Squadron detachment survived on Tarsonis following the fall of the Confederacy, only to be finally eradicated by the zerg.[5]

New AllegianceEdit

Despite their neural resocialization, some members of Omega Squadron, such as Gui Montag, joined the Terran Dominion.[6] "Death's Head" troopers (as part of the Terran Dominion) took part in battle against the zerg on Artika. The Squadron managed to inflict heavy losses to the zerg in the battle to capture the xel'naga temple there but lost the battle itself as a courtesy of the arrival of a massive protoss force catching the Squadron off-guard. The protoss eventually won the battle, but at great cost.[7]

Known MembersEdit

Charlie SquadEdit

Main article: Charlie Squad

Charlie Squad, also known as Death's Head 2-0-1, was wiped out trying to secure a xel'naga temple on the world of Artika from protoss and zerg forces. The squad was one of the first units to land and fought through zerg forces to capture the temple. The squad was then destroyed by Dark Templar except for Private Jin-ho Lim, who was then killed by the zergling Scar.[7]

Other MembersEdit

TriviaEdit

Although Omega Squadron's color is listed as black, its in-game color is brown. This is because black would not show up on the mini-map well.
